The story of Jagseer Singh, with his piquant individual and social situation, is actually a story that is very personal in appeal but carries a distinct political message. Lonely and at the end derelict, Jagseer's story is refective of how social hierarchy, caste struggle and economic exploitation can break the soul of an individual and create chaos in social and personal relationships. The tragedy of Jag seer, enlivened all the more by his unrequited love for his friend Nikkas wife, Bhani and alleviated by his addiction to opium, opens up the feudal environs of the Punjab villages before the reader a bit surreptitiously making the characters and the story grow upon them slowly but surely.

Gurdial Singh (b. 1933), one of the most respected novelists of India, has not only enriched the Punjabi literary scene, but has actually been one of the pioneering lit erateurs of Indian literature. The present novel, Marhi Da Deeva (1964), showed his def handling of the personal as well as impersonal emotions in an experimental mode making him a household name. Recipient of all major literary awards of the country, including the BharatiyaJnanpithAward (1999), Bhai Veer Singh Fiction Award (1992), the Soviet Land Nehru Award (1986) and the Sahitya Akademi Award (1979), he has contributed profusely in the genres of novels, short stories, drama and children's literature.
